Fork Lift Drivers

Fork Lift Truck Drivers Operators Medical £49

It is important that all fork lift truck operators have an appropriate level of medical fitness for the work they are expected to undertake and these medical considerations are detailed on pages 8 and 9 of booklet HSG6 provided by the Health and Safety Executive.

 

This guidance booklet states:

“It is good practice for all operators and potential operators to be screened for fitness before employment and again at regular intervals in middle age. Examination at age 40 and thereafter at five-yearly intervals up to age 65 is recommended. Operators over 65 should be screened annually. Examination is also recommended in all cases after an accident or sickness absence of more than one month, or after a shorter period if it appears likely that the illness may affect fitness to operate the forklift.?

 

The standard of fitness required to operate a lift truck is generally the same as that required for a Group 1 Driving licence (i.e. a full UK drivers’ license) but applying the principle of individual assessment of fitness should ensure that people with disabilities are not disadvantaged. Some people with disabilities will have developed compensatory skills. Reasonable adjustment to work equipment, as can be required by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, may enable a disabled person to operate a lift truck safely. Competence in an emergency must, however, always be considered.

Points to be considered concerning the normal level of fitness required are:

  • General – musculo skeletal system, mental health, other medical issues.
  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Epilepsy
  • Every year from the age of 65
  • On first application for a PSV licence
  • Upon reaching the age of 45, and thereafter every 5 years

The medical takes around 30 minutes and you should bring a urine specimen with you. If you wear glasses please also bring these, together with any optician’s report that you may have. The form is completed there and then by the Doctor and ready to take away for your Employer. Please bring Photo Identification and a list of any medications that you are taking.
